What is Point of Sale?

Only the income you earned on your production while it was under your control is allowable for AgriInvest. This is why it is important to determine when the point of sale occurs.

The point of sale is determined by the following conditions:

  • you produce the commodity on your farm;
  • it is separate and identifiable from other’s commodities;
  • you bear full risk for the commodity; and
  • you have a separate invoice that shows the sale value and any deductions from the sale value.

Any value added to your production after the point of sale occurs is not allowable for AgriInvest.
